Why such a big focus on the new version of Premium Map Search?
Today’s discerning clientele have grown accustomed to the sophisticated real estate search experiences provided by Redfin and Zillow. Failing to offer your website visitors high-caliber search functionality will undoubtedly result in promising leads clicking away from your site and toward the industry giants. Why risk losing people already on your website when you could be using the user-intuitive Premium Map Search, with its included lead capture, activity information, and robust marketing features to convert those leads to clients?
Those who know this industry well also know that nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity. By relying on other platforms, you forgo critical insights that could carry customers through your sales pipeline. As a Realtor who has already invested in your brand and web presence, the Premium Map Search is the heart of your website that makes it invaluable. This will allow you the time and energy to educate buyers and sellers, nurture your leads, and focus on client retention for the long term, making the Premium Map Search an indispensable component of a successful online strategy. We invite you to view Version 10 Premium Map Search for yourself.
In the realm of IDX solutions, the Premium Map Search stands apart with its remarkable feature functionality surpassing even its predecessors. A prime example is the inclusion of Universal Search, an exclusive feature to Version 10, which offers users versatile search capabilities by encompassing a wide range of unique parameters. Leads can search not only city, postal code and county, but also by lifestyle interests like certain condos or properties near their favorite golf course. This level of specificity caters to the unique needs and desires of the most savvy real estate buyers.
Polygon Map Search
iHomefinders Polygon Map Search is an innovative and user-friendly tool designed to help homebuyers and real estate professionals easily find and visualize properties within a specific area on a map. Users can draw their desired search area directly on the map by creating polygons, which allows for a more precise and targeted search compared to conventional search methods that rely on predefined boundaries, such as zip codes or neighborhoods.
When building out Neighborhood or Popular Searches, Realtors can also use the Polygon Map Search to define unique areas in their market. Here is an example of the Polygon Map Search used to define Lake Tahoe Lakefront Listings a Popular Search in the Lake Tahoe market.
Property Profile Enhancements
iHomefinder’s latest Premium Map Search also demonstrates their commendable commitment to lead capture, evidenced by the introduction of four strategically chosen call to action options on each property details page. Visitors can opt to Share, Save, Schedule a Tour, and Request Information. The placement of two “sticky” calls to action – Schedule a Tour and Request Information – remain prominently visible as users scroll, ensuring continuous opportunities for engagement. These dynamic call-to-action features can be moved based on your website layout preference.
Visitors want to see listing photos, and the ability to showcase them in the best possible light is key. There are two new options when displaying property listing photos with the Premium Map Search. The Thumbnail option displays listing photo thumbnails at the bottom of the photo display. The second option is a Photo Carousel which displays a filmstrip-style band, with previews of the previous and next photos. You can choose the one that works best for your site design and preferred aesthetic.
The aesthetic design overhaul of the property details pages is not only refreshing, but also highly functional and engaging. The clean design, skillful use of white space, and user-friendly navigation mirror what one might experience on major real estate portals, but without leaving your site. This meticulously designed approach to layout enhances the overall user experience and interaction.
Built-In Virtual Tours
The Premium Map Search continues to impress with its array of sophisticated features. Among these is the integration of virtual tours which are embedded within the property detail pages. The virtual tour will automatically play when clicked from within the property detail pages. This allows visitors the ability to view virtual tours hosted on platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo, or Matterport – without ever leaving your site.
Perhaps most intriguing new functionality is the use of artificial intelligence to power the Similar Listings feature. By analyzing individual visitor’s behavioral data, the platform generates personalized listing recommendations within each property details page, allowing for uninterrupted engagement and user insight. With every new feature, iHomefinder’s Premium Map Search masterfully combines advanced technology with practical utility, setting a new standard in the IDX solutions space.

Marketing Automation allows you to convert more leads with smart, automated follow-up. It’s like having a personal assistant that helps keep your clients engaged and up-to-date while keeping your name and brand in front of them.
